Is there anyone is to DCS flight sim.

My son and I are looking to build a complete gaming setup with multiplayer server. These systems will be all VR and network will be all fiber.

Money isn’t the issue as we’re gonna take our time and research it to death before we buy anything.

So has anyone ever built a flight sim using DCS.

Someone posted a video of one probably 4 years ago. The technology should be there. Probably a ton of gotchas in terms of switches and shit, but it should work.

have you tried VR yet? I would rather get a huge monitor one screen than do VR.

Growling Sidewinder (YouTube) has some killer DCS vids, including a few VR setup vids.

DCS looks so wicked; I just never had the time to dedicate to it (still don't). It is as in-depth a game as I've ever seen. A VR setup would be super badass, esp. with the newer generation VR headsets with minimized screen-door & god-ray issues.

Couple of vids:

And one from OperatorDrewski (really good Arma pilot/gamer):

Wags is a good one too.

My goal the next year or two is to get a console set up that can do DCS, ATS, MSFS.

maybe a driving game or two.

DCS looks kick ass. I"m a nerd when it comes to process, or as the pilots in the Navy called it "left had switch-ology".

I had a goal to build a console last year, but Jesus Christ.....prices were crazy. I assume they'll still be crazy, but maybe not 'as' bad. I have a budget of about probably 1k-1500 for a console, + and additional bit of $ for monitor / desk/mounting/race sim etc..

People sell their shit all the time as they lose interest in sim racing or flight sims.

Yes have flown DCS f18 in VR. Just like real flying that we experience. We’re going all in via VR with the best VR googles on the market etc.

But will have a nice Big monitor per gaming pc.
